10 of the 22 Students will be Certified this Month!

Your gift of transportation school scholarships has allowed 22 adult students to receive training to become fully licensed commercial truck drivers. Following the completion of their training, they will be able to secure well-paying employment, nearly doubling their income, and provide for their families. The first group of 10 students are expected to receive their certificates at the end of June, while the second group of 12 are currently completing their open road practice!

Students have to complete rigorous theoretical testing before they can hit the open road safely!

Why Truck Driving?

With a shortage of more than 5,000 truck drivers in Honduras, graduates of this program will have a high chance of success at becoming gainfully employed in a high-demand industry. Additionally, drivers are anticipated to earn approximately $700 per month, which is well above the minimum wage of $375!

Here is the second group of students, now learning from the driver seat!














These students will play an important part in repairing gender inequality issues in the Honduran workplace and opening doors for women to have the same income-earning potential as men.

Training covers the following course components:

  • Practical Theory
  • Virtual Simulation
  • Open Road Practice
  • Professional Practice

“I haven’t been able to find work. I heard about the truck school and I know that it would be a great opportunity for me, but I am poor and can’t afford this kind of education – not without help. I am a person who has always worked hard, and I don’t like to depend on anyone. But, my current situation means I have to depend on others for everything. It hurts knowing that I can’t provide basic necessities like food, clothes, and other opportunities to my girls. That’s what this school can do.”
– Leticia, a graduate of this program and a 48-year-old single grandmother of two girls
